Manufacturing Processes

Saving energy and increasing production efficiency while ensuring a safe working environment are key requirements of most manufacturing processes. And this particularly applies to the controlling and management of dust and fume generated in the process of manufacture. Dust and fume extraction is a main requirement of most manufacturing industries, and all dust and fume control systems from DCS are tailored to the specific requirements of the customer.

At DCS, our reputation has been built on an ability to provide the most cost-efficient extraction solution, both technical and commercial, for any dust and fume problem. We have the widest choice of filter types and technologies available, which means we can always offer the most suitable energy-efficient system for any application.

Dust extraction systems can range from stand-alone units for one machine, to large, centralised dust control systems. Suitable fume extraction systems range from a small fume extraction arm that will extract from a single source, for example a welding bench, to a centralised dust and fume control system, to extract from multiple sources.

Among the many notable projects undertaken by DCS was for Assa Abloy, the world’s biggest lock maker with brands that include such well known names as Chubb, Union and Yale. At Assa Abloy’s UK manufacturing operation in the West Midlands, DCS provided an efficient ‘capture-at-source’ solution in the polishing workshop to extract brass/zinc dust and mop fibres generated during the linishing and polishing of mortise lock components, cylinders and night latches. Each twin-headed lathe station and automatic polisher has been fitted with a custom-designed hood that captures and entrains the dust for transportation, via ductwork to one of three separate internally located filter units. Automatic Shaker Filters, suitable for potentially explosive dusts, have been installed to handle air volumes in excess of 11,000m³/hr.
